"You probably heard of the power of teaching by example? Martha is one of these inspiring people whose passion for what she does naturally creates her business of teaching languages and dancing. Ever thought of learning Spanish, visually, auditory plus moving your body with the rhythm of uno, dos, tres, ...? That's what we did at Martha's talk at Fabulous Women and I think I can safely say, we didn't just learn to count from one to ten but also got a reminder of how much fun and ease learning can be."

Martina Grubmueller

"I loved my Spanish lessons with Martha Jesty - she has a very thorough and engaging approach to learning Spanish and I felt that my spoken Spanish particularly improved over the course of my 10 lessons with her. She also gave me lots of advice for home learning. I would thoroughly recommend lessons with her."

Clare H

"Very efficient Spanish courses because of the small group size. Martha Jesty our Spanish teacher adapted to our level when she noticed we didn't follow. Excellent teacher."
